Global reorganization of the concern General Motors continues. The company continues to reduce the lineup, plants and people. Now under the “knife” model came Volt electric and sedan LaCrosse.

General Motors continues to cut costs. This time it is planned to reduce labor costs from $ 2,374 to $ 2,350. Despite the difference of $ 24, it was quite a reason for the closure of production in America. From the official representative of Dan Flores it became known about the termination of the release of two models of GM – Chevrolet Volt and Buick LaCrosse

 Despite the fact that the Detroit plant will continue its work for about a year, the models that are losing popularity have already been discontinued. While the plant will produce models CT6 and Impala. Of course, the closure of the plant will lead to the loss of a large number of jobs, which the local unions are dissatisfied with, but they can not influence the situation in any way.

Chevrolet Volt has become a relatively popular electric car in America. However, the reduction in tax compensation from the US government, as well as the emergence of more and more new competitors, made the model uncompetitive and unprofitable.
